Has anyone ever experienced this? Have you ever met a White person (or a person of any race) in real life (or online) who claimed, "Racism is dead" or at least "Is no longer a problem"; but when asked why there is racial inequality, they delve off into negative rhetoric about Minoritie and why they are behind?


Think about it, if there is no systematic racism, then the only reason anyone must be behind is because of an inherent inferiority since there is no oppression. I've even met some racism-deniers that claim there are so many poor Whites because those Whites are "just lazy" or "unintelligent".


Anyone else see how denial of racism is just a thinly-veiled attempt to perpetuate it?

Intuitively, if not consciously, each and every Denier/Minimizer knows. For White Deniers/Minimizers, they know they benefit from continued racism/WHITE SUPREMACY. The way some act, they are addicted to, if not dependent on the idea.

The very notion itself, the very idea of White Denial is racist in and of itself. It is an attempt to install WHITE SUPREMACY. Not only are Black people lazy, in their eyes, but Black people, for some reason, seem to want to believe Their Lying Eyes over what them good, honorable and objective White Folk have to say.

And, really... Those Deniers need to try that dumbshit referencing Poor Whites a little more discreetly. In any other situation they'll say, "There are Poor Whites. So how is there racism." OR "There are Poor Whites. So it shouldn't be about race. Poor Whites got a hard time too. And... ummm... White Ethnics were discriminated against too. And... And..."

Now that's the epitome of SPUTTERING...

What's up with Constructive Feedback? ...I'm heavily leaning towards the theory that he's white.
Whatever he is (Black or White), he has some serious issues.

Apparently, he has a long history with certain posters here. Back when there was a (original) forum on The Black World Today (TBWT) website, he went by the name CONSERVO. On Faheem's blog, CON-Feed apparently went by the name Renaldo. He also apparently posted on BET.com when the was a forum there and left me a private message referencing our TBWT encounters.

Kevin, Vox, Faheem and Noah could probably give you a better idea than I can but he hardly seemed to be as much of the spazz he has become when we all posted on TBWT. There, it only seemed like he had those "different views" and was trying to make sense of them and assert their legitimacy. Now, he seems plagued by his Inner Test Tube/Outcast Self-Contradictions and Conflicts.

If he's White. He's coming apart at the seams. Finding it hard to hold character. If he's Black... Well, as I said, he has some serious issues and, obviously, he having a rough time trying to deal with them.

Oh and he apparently runs this blog where he fashions himself as a CULTURAL STRATEGIST:

off

But, I have a few theories on who and what CON-Feed is (and he's not the only one here like himself, Michael Lofton doesn't count, he's a Spambot):

1) A CONSERVATIVE WHITE GUY WHO VIEWS BLACK PEOPLE AS BEING "BENEATH HIM" COMING HERE TO SPAM THE SITE WITH TRIPE (WHILE PRETENDING TO BE BLACK) THINKING HE CAN GET US TO BREAK DOWN AND ACT ALL "NIGGERISH" SO HE CAN GET A GOOD LAUGH.

2) An extremely sheltered Black man who grew up in a middle-class/rich home by Black Middleclass parents who told him that "Your race doesn't matter, never look at race" which inherently led him to believe that since there is "no racism", that some people are behind because they are inherenty inferior.

3) An extremely sheltered Black man who grew up in a middle-class/rich home by Black Middleclass parents who instilled in him to persue wealth, no matter what the cost (even if it means being sycophantic to the dominant group).

4) A Black man from a working-class/poor background who was so desperate to get ahead, that he was willing to sell his soul for money (like he accuses poor Black drug-pushers of doing), except his soul is sold to the Corporate Powers-That-Be.


**5) [THIS IS THE MOST OUTLANDISH THEORY] A DEEP-DEEP-DEEP-DEEP-DEEP UNDERCOVER BLACK MAN WHO SECRETLY WORKS FOR A BLACK NATIONALIST MOVEMENT/CAUSE WHO IS DOING WORK POSING AS A SELLOUT AFRICAN-AMERICAN TO INFILTRATE THE SYSTEM FROM WITHIN. HE PRETENDS TO BE ULTRA-CONSERVATIVE SO AS NOT TO AROUSE SUSPICION FROM HIS WHITE PEERS. HE COMES HERE AS A SOCIAL EXPERIMENT TO SEE HOW RESISTANT THE MINDS OF OTHER AFRICAN-AMERICANS ARE TO STATUS-QUO DEFENDING RHETORIC, AND TO AGGRIVATE US TO FURTHER ALLEVIATE ANY SUSPICION FROM HIS WHITE PEERS. HE PLANS ON MOVING UP IN THE SYSTEM SO THAT HE CAN INFILTRATE FURTHER AND GAIN ACCESS TO TOP-SECRET INFORMATION ON THE ESTABLISHMENT'S PLANS TO SUBVERT BLACK AMERICA. WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT, HE WILL TAKE HIS ACQUIRED TOP-SECRET KNOWLEDGE, DIVERGE IT TO BLACK FORUMS AND HIS BLACK NATIONALIST COMRADES, AND BREAK DOWN THE WHITE ESTABLISHMENT FROM WITHIN.

HIS AGENT NUMBER IS "S-O-U-L-P-W-R-3453-Z-765-AE".



lol lol


......oh God, now that I mentioned Lofton-Bot's name, that will trigger his algorithims to spam this thread!! Eek
You mean minimizers/deniers who say things like "thug culture" in comparison with the racism in America is worse for the Black community at large -- as if "thug culture" is a concept born, bred and thriving only among people of African descent, regardless of economic status or educational background, and without any external influences that nurture it?

...those kind of mindless, malevolent, deconstructive minimizers/deniers... that's what is being referred to, right?! Wink

Yup. All the time.

Racism is such a dirty word, and unlike the past, it is taboo to be openly racist, so racist must pretend that they are not racist and that racism does not exist.

Of course, it is. And...they know it.

It's the way the game is played.

There is no problem...until there is a problem.

Then it's 'one of those things' that happen. Nothing to be concern. Aren't you and I friends???

There is no problem and there won't be a problem as long you understand there is no problem. Right?

And...there won't be a problem if you don't begin to think you should be treated like every other American?

Doesn't that make sense?

What's the problem?

Don't ger paranoid on me, now!!


PEACE

Empty Purnata, this is a very interesting topic. Most of the whites I encounter in real time(or on the net) truly believe that racism is either dead or "not as bad as it used to be". When I tell them otherwise, most get upset and begin to attack me or talk about the "mess" that's in the black community and want to preach to me about blacks taking responsibility for our actions. My favorite "comeback" from these white folk is the "you blacks are always blaming the white man for your problems" thing. Now nothing in the conversation dealt with blaming whites for anything. I merely mentioned the fact that there are still many disparities among the races and they need to be addressed. But no.....instead of dealing with the disparities, they want to attack the one delivering the message. Very typical.

I found this article and I think it is in alignment with your post. Enjoy.......

The "New" Racism

Oh well......
In a recent departmental "Team-Building" exercise, we were asked to articulate our "Civil Rights Dream."

Everyone gave the pat "I dream of the day when all people are treated fairly, with dignity and respect" or "I dream for the day when there is no longer a need for our department." And, everyone's head was bobbing, "Yep, Yep." Well, at least until they got to me, the only Black male in the division [well, there's one other, but he racially identifies with his white italian mother rather than his African-American father; even though he has never been to Italy].

I told the group that my "Civil Rights Dream is for the day when we, Black, white, hispanic, male, female, gay or whatever our discrete group, can sit down and openly and honestly discuss and celebrate our commonalities and differences."

The room went silent.
